The Kanzuki-Ryuu Kou'ou Ken (神月流 皇王拳, Kanzuki/God Moon-Style Emperor King Fist) is one of Karin's special attacks, introduced as an A-ISM-exclusive Super Combos in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing kick, Karin performs a more powerful, multiple-hitting Ressen Ha that is aimed upwards into the air, making it work as more of an anti-air than its original/parent overhead counterpart. In Street Fighter V, it acts as the EX Special version of the Ressen Ha.


The move has incredibly high priority on startup, allowing Karin to snuff just about any other move; it may appear as a solid anti-air Super Combo, but it can also outhit ground-based attacks as well. The move's range is just about inside sweep distance, making it an excellent wake-up move.
